Easy night

Night 3 of chemo was not particularly difficult. I called 11 for bedtime and was off by about 45 minutes; not too shabby. I got to sleep a little while later, getting involved with The Legend of Neil. Very funny, very NOT for kids.

He woke up a couple of times, but only once seriously. At 3:45, he was up and screaming for no apparent reason. It took about 40 minutes to get him soothed. I think he was just having aches and pains, but there's no real way to be certain.

We were both up at 6 when the nurse came to do blood draws. I love our nurse from last night - she's a cool chick and very competant -but she had the subtlety of a herd of elephants last night. I got my 6 hours sleep, just in 45 minute increments.

The Boy needs blood today - his hemoglobin was down to 5.6, which is mighty low for this early in the process. Sigh. Lunch with Uncle B at 12.
